Matter and evaporation: below zero

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson  |  RAR

Experiment with phase transformations of water. Heat a block of ice to just below freezing point. Predict changes to the molecular structure and molecular motion. Look closely at movement of the water molecules, especially at the surface. Explain why the molecules remain tightly bonded. This learning object is one in a series of three objects. The series is also packaged as a combined learning object.

Students relate rising temperature of a substance to the increasing speed of its molecules.
Students describe the changes in molecular structure accompanying changes in state from solid to liquid and from liquid to gas.
Students identify that temperature remains constant until a change of state is complete.
